Cleaning wheels on locos

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

One of my locos was running like a pig, stopping for no reason, lights flickers for seemingly no good reason, I checked the wheels and they looked clean.


I also was running my Class 37 which as per usual tore around the track at a rate of knots.



I got out my fancy Peco wheel cleaning gizmo I was kindly given by an old model railroader.



Hooked it up , watched the dirt fly, wheels that didn't look dirty were pure filth.


Lesson learned there :tumbsup:


The train is rumbling around the track quite nicely with a freight load as I type.


all is good again.
